Tsum Valley Trek Overview

Tsum meaning Vivid in the Tibetan language is the hidden gem of Nepal in the Himalayas. Situated in the northern Gorkha, the hidden valley is isolated from modern development and facilities. Far from disturbances in the lap of the Himalayas, the Tsum valley trek is a blend of Tibetan cultures and majestic panorama of Sringi Himal (7187m), Ganesh Himal (7422m) and Buddha Himal (6672m).  

Being a recently opened trekking route, Tsum valley is not exposed like other trekking destinations of Nepal. The 16 days Tsum valley trek starts from the city of temple, Kathmandu and takes you deep into the picturesque village of Soti Khola, Maccha Khola, Jagat, initially following the trail of the Manaslu circuit.  As you trek further from Jagat you will walk past the quaint village of Lokpa, Chumling, Chhokhang Paro, Nile and then to Mu Gompa and Rachen Gompa, sacred Buddhist sites of the region. As the journey moves ahead the serene beauty of the hills, landscapes, woodlands and the warm hospitality of locals soothe your body and soul, making the trip even more worthwhile. Get an insight into the Tibetan influenced culture, lifestyle and tradition of locals as you stay in tea houses overnight and walk past Chortens, mani walls and gompas on your way.  Tsum valley trek is indeed an exhilarating experience in the isolated hidden gem of Nepal in the Himalayas. 

Be a part of the trek that winds you up to the less commercialized, less modernized and unadulterated scenery of the fascinating Tsum valley. We are here to provide you with optimum satisfaction with our best services.
